Hello, So I finally got my Audigy 2 ZS installed under Windows 98 SE by installing VxD drivers manually. I'm using a Asus p5pe-vm motherboard. All of the system sounds come through just fine, CD Audio works fine as well. However, when trying to launch most games I do not get any audio. Most games don't produce an error just silence. However, any of the Humongous Entertainment games do produce this interesting error that prevents the game from running: "during the dma buffer size search the sound card wouldn't prepare our sound headers" I honestly have no idea what to do with that and Google hasn't turned up much. I tried disabling hardware acceleration on my sound card and I've also tried enabling DMA on my CD-Drive. Everything is set to use the Emu10Kx Mixer [E400] which I'm assuming is the Audigy card. Running DXDIAG sound test I get the following report: DirectSound [Emu10Kx Wave Out [E400]] Device ID: PCI\VEN_1102DEV_0004SUBSYS_20021102RE\ Manufacturer ID: 2 Product ID: 104 Type: VXD Default Device: Yes CTAUD9X.VXD 4.12.0001.0381 9/23/03 ctaud9x.vxd Creative Technology, Ltd. DirectX is set to full acceleration DirectSound test failed at Step 10 (Secondary buffer): HRESULT = 0x8007000e (Out of memory) I tried uninstalling the hardware and software for my Audigy 2 ZS and reinstall using the CD available on vogonsdrivers. BIG MISTAKE. Nothing at all worked anymore. So I removed the hardware and software and tried installing the drivers for my motherboard built-in sound. Similar to the other result I can hear the Windows startup chime (although it sounds terrible) and I can hear some sounds from some games (although terrible). Ironically Humongous Entertainment games still throw the same error. I ran DXDIAG sound test again and noticed it failed at Step 17 (out of memory). I'm running out of ideas unfortunately, maybe someone has come across something similar and may have some suggestions. Thank you for any help. Regards
